Some of my stable. I wanted to collect the "most desirable" engine combinations from each manufacturer and hold onto some of my lawnboys. Not pictured are my old love 7268, 5247 (2) of them and my first 10323 in the course of a motor rebuild with a punched out carb using a 42.5 R-Teck pilot and #68 wire drilled main jet.

Only thing I'd like to add is a Commercial DF 22261 etc.

On to the pics.

Some of the various mowers..right to left Lawnboy with HONDA GCV160, 14SB, JX75, and Wisconsin Robin 2 Cycle Snapper






Close up of Mr Honda/Boy


The John Deere Kawasaki Pressure Lubers


My new girlfriend the WR Snapper and Mr. JX75


Rack O'Lawn Boys, 10323s, 10523, and JC Penny right side of rack is finished 'Boys and left side is on deck to get stripped and re-done.

Very nice machines, Im glad you grabbed the jx75....

With You and Neal talking about the 2 cycle robin, i want to try one now....
Thanks bro...it was a labor of love rebuilding a pressure lube Kawa but I did it and I was gald you put me onto them. I love my 14SB and JX75-it takes a mighty fine 4 CYCLE to lure me to use it over my LBs or Robin but I am spreading the love.

I like my 7268.....I like the simplicity, light weight and ease of operation. If it dies I can rebuild it in 3 hours. Have it running in 4. Most of the time I use it for cardio workout on our hills. 2 hours of pushing this littl eguy around gets the heart rate up real well. Plus I love the 3200 rpm burble of the F..!





But I must say I love to look at the JDs and love to hear the WR Snapper. :sorry1:

Now all you need is a 2cycle Suzuki Toro mower and you'll have the full house of killer mowers :p

Thanks but I feel I am living right because of "who" I know more than what I have...:fing32:

If you are in PA take your pick...! Cut you a deal on your favorite !!

I do appreciate the help you gave me on 14SB parts and such. It REALLY helped and I'll always remember that.

Let's see some pics of that SNappy TEC 2...?

Unfortunately, I couldn't live much farther from you seeing that I live 100 miles from the pacific ocean in a suburb or Portland..... although, if you still have the toro next spring..... We'll be talkin :D

I'll try and get some soon, Its kept down at church and I won't be bringing it home until the end of the season for its end of year cleaning.

Its about a ten year old recycler deck (bottom of deck flaired out, not tucked under) that has new steel wheels and the Tec is a NOS engine(never ran) I got with my other Snapper, put on this deck this last March. Its got maybe 15-20 hours on it total.

Ha ! I know-I try to use two everytime I cut. I have 3/4 of an acre and I use one on one side of the property and another on the other. Driveway runs down the middle so I can split it up pretty well.

That sounds like a nice macheen. I built my 7268 for our church I toss him in the trunk with my small blower and link-it homelite and still have plenty of room. I love the pre-compliance mowers for ease of travel.

I'd leave it in the shed at church but I hate how humid it gets in there.

Nice collection of mowers! You seem to have all of the ones I'm currently looking for. I really like that(I dunno what to call it) Honda-Boy...really cool and original looking.

I know what you mean about the 7268 being a great mower, I love mine, picking up a new seal for mine tomorrow, can't wait to tear into it!

Well, your pics have inspired me, off to craigslist, the search for a JD Kawi and a WR powered mower continues!
